Kinfolk winter flowers

Kinfolk Flowers shot by Parker Fitzgerald
In January, I worked on a photoshoot in my old floral studio (ahem bedroom) that has found a home in the current volume of Kinfolk Magazine. It was the first collaboration between Parker Fitzgerald and I, and while we've created some really satisfying stories together since, this one is still the favorite. We both were quite new in the world of professional shoots at the time, and I think it set the tone for what would end up being a very creative and successful year for us. A win just out of the gate, thanks in part to Francesca and Micha who graciously let me poke them with flowers all day.

While I was knee-deep in flowers that day, I got a phone call to style my first commercial advertising shoot. I hyperventilated a bit, and then went out for fried chicken with everyone. A practice in self-actualization that still makes me flush with unexpected happiness. It's been a great run, and while the year is nearly over, it's still only the beginning around here. I hope you spend the end of this one warm and surrounded by those you love. I'll be christmassing with my parents and new yearsing with Michael. The only thing that will be missing is a big, long hug from my sister who can't come home this year.

  4. How very, very pretty. I'd love to be "dressed" in your flower arrangements. I think you might like the newest photo on my blog, btw, although my flower crown is much simpler than yours.

  10. You just spread some light, happiness, sunshine and tons of feel-good-smiles in my direction! I am knee-deep (rather up to my ears) in the last bunch of 'home made' Christmas cards (own photos, self-mounted, every single card 'custom made' and written for the recipient) and badly needed a reason to break up for a mug of tea, some Christmas cookies and a blogger-dash.... it was you I visited and I'm so glad I did.
    This is stunningly wonderful - thank you so much.
    HAPPY, HAPPY DAYS for you and yours - big hugs and kisses from France & Switzerland

  11. Oh my gosh, this was you?! Honestly, this was by far my favorite story in the most recent Kinfolk. Such an age-lessness about the whole thing I just loved. Best yet.

  13. So lovely, it's a visual feast! What a gift for the season. Right in the middle of
    cleaning my house (ugh!), I checked my emails and here you were with the nicest kind
    of cheer.

    Happy holidays!

  21. This was by far my favorite part out of the recent Kinfolk issue, I always hoped to stumble upon whoever styled this shoot and at first when I saw your blog I thought you were just another fan admiring the work of the beautiful floral shoot...and I was pleasantly surprised you helped out with it and had a part in this. Amazing.

    Congratulations on your first commercial advertising shoot, you will do incredible things in 2013.
